Sunset Cliffs

Here I've taken an acrylic under painting and kept the original values as I added layers in oils. I find that using acrylics first gives me more freedom when applying the oils and amounts to a more spontaneous look, important when you're describing voluminous clouds. Please let me know any C + C! This is a 16 x 20 oil on canvas.

About Christina Evans


I was born in New Jersey, my family moved to California when I was young and now I am living the country life in Spotsylvania, Virginia with my own family.  I paint in an impressionistic style and the subject of my work is always light and the mood associated with it.  I use photographs, sketches and memory to capture the light and shadows and the essence of a particular place.   With a supportive husband and two children who love to paint along with me, I have the wonderful opportunity to pursue what I love to do.  I appreciate all feedback on this site,  I think that is the best way to keep learning and improving.
